Here is a Question from One of Our Customers:
I wear a swarovski crystal pendant. Is this considered a clear quartz crystal? Does it have the same properties?
I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Crystals for healing should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care.
Swarovski crystals are a man made lead glass. I answered this very question not long ago and I am going to post my response to that question for you to read.
While natural quartz crystals are 99% Silicon Dioxide, lead glass or lead crystals are 88% or less. They do not have the same crystalline structure of natural crystal and do not have the same vibration. When lead crystal is vibrated the structure is not stable and the crystal will weaken and many times break. The molecular arrangement of natural crystals allows it to vibrate without loosing cohesiveness.
What this all means is that no Swarovski crystals do not have the healing properties of quartz. If they are colored they have a color vibration but no other healing properties outside of color.
